well, it all started when i woke up that morning & the sun was shining which amazed me because the day before, it was gloomy & ugly. then my brother & i gathered the rest of the gang, the gang consists of me, jabbaar (brother), keem (brother) & shakiba (brother’s gf). we headed down 2 the park & we met up w/ the rest of my family. i, later, met up w/ Sunnii. i met my niece zaria’s teacher Ms. Braswell. i met a couple other people. we ate, we conversed, we playing & mingled. beautiful, beautiful.
softball came around & my side of the family lost (again) 2 my sister’s side of the family. here’s the teams:
Jay (brother in law)
Some extra boy & girl
we almost won, but idk what happened. if u want 2 know go 2 Antoine’s blog. after that we ate, conversed, laughed, joked & all the other good stuff u do @ family functions. then it was time 4 Sunnii, my sister Meerah & me 2 to go so we could go crash two other barbeques. that didn’t go as planned @ all. in fact we got into a fatal car accident on Crenshaw & Florence. this accident has been like the top new story on every channel 4 a couple of days. here are some links:
i happen 2 be in the sixth car that was nearly untouched. different news channels report different things. this is what i know since i was there. six people died, 4 of them were children. & this is that story from my point of view.
i was sitting in the front passenger’s seat of the car listening 2 my ipod w/ my brand new earphones i got just that day. my sister, who was driving, pulled into the turning lane on crenshaw so she could make a left down florence. we were behind a van & no one else was behind us. the light turned green 4 us & the van pulled out 2 turn when all of a sudden a black SUV (Yukon, maybe) was trying 2 catch the light & sped through the intersection. & crashed right into van causing the van 2 hit about 4 other cars & two other cars eventually hit us, well bumped us. we weren’t hit that hard, which is why i didn’t think that this accident wasn’t going 2 be so bad. i was ready 2 get out the car & give someone a piece of my mind. that didn’t play out because the van that was next 2 us ended up in next 2 the stop light post & it burst into a huge flame.
in panic, meerah, sunnii, erica (meerah’s friend & i, all hopped out the car while the gear was still in drive causing the car 2 roll off from the big explosion. the car rolls on the corner & hits a gate. unfortunately i run right into an oil slick which causes me 2 fall, but i hop right back up & run away from the fire.
meerah’s in hysterics, crying & trembling. SUNNii’s crying calling her mom & erica has her back turned 2 the fire. screaming & crying everywhere. i turn back 2 the scene & the van is burning & on the ground is a little girl & people are crying 4 her 2 get up. people are getting pulled out the van. everyone’s watching it like it’s tv. & after a while everything became a horrific blur.
the firemen came & put out the fire. the ambulances came & took about twenty people 2 the hospital. the accident happend @ five & the police came & questioned us until nine. my crew & i were the only people left @ the scene accept 4 three other witnesses.
yes, i’m thankful 2 be alive & it’s still crazy 2 me that my sister’s car rolled away safely. & i send my condolensces 2 all the families who were there who suffered.
& that was my memorial day.

sorry 4 the lack of post.

honestly, idk wtf is going on.
The economic plight of the deejay within the music industry is to be the focus of a three day event in Washington, DC in August with rallies and activities beginning August 28, 2008 and organizers are expecting the attendance of deejays from around the world. The event will culminate in a Million DJ March from the Capitol Building to the Washington Monument on August 30th and its message is attracting not only deejays and deejay organizations, but civil rights activists as well. Plans for an organized union for deejays to assist them with things like 401k’s and gig compensation security, is expected to be introduced at this time, which attending deejays will be encouraged to sign up for.
Long recognized as the backbone of the music industry without which records could not be broken, deejays are generally the least compensated members of the music equation and are, in fact, often harassed and legally penalized for thier promotional efforts even when those efforts have been solicited directly by the labels and artists themselves: an arrangement that is known about throughout the industry but kept ‘on the low’.
i’m down w/ this.
talk about good looking out.
shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has established an educational trust for the for the children of Sean Bell, the unarmed African-American man who was shot and killed by police on the day he was to be married.Sources have confirmed with AllHipHop.com that Jay-Z is working closely with Nicole Paultre Bell, Sean Bell’s widow, to institute the trust funds for both of their children.Nicole Bell appeared prominently in Jay-Z’s Rocawear “I Will Not Lose” advertising campaign with images that caused indignation within the NYPD’s Benevolent Association.The process began prior to the not guilty verdict for three police officers accused of slaying Sean Bell.A well-informed source close to the matter told AllHipHop.com that Nicole Bell’s lawyers didn’t want to initiate any activity during the trial.Typically, a trust fund is regarded as a long-term, profitable program that can provide significant monies that vest when a child becomes an adult or graduates from college.
